Title: Appointment of Eliot Lear as new IETF Liaison Manager to the
ITU-T

The IAB would like to bring to the ITU-T's attention the appointment
of
Mr. Eliot Lear the new IETF Liaison Manager to the ITU-T.

The IETF Liaison Manager to the ITU-T sees to the day to day aspects
of
the relationship with the ITU-T, provides guidance to the IESG, IAB,
and
the IETF as a whole on strategic matters involving both organizations.
In addition, Mr. Lear will work closely with our other liaison
managers
to assure consistency of approach across technologies, as well as see
that liaisons from the ITU-T to the IETF are appropriately allocated
and
responded to. We expect Mr. Lear to play a significant supporting role
in strategic discussions between the IETF and ITU leadership.

Mr. Lear has over twenty years experience in networking, during nearly
all of which he has in some way participated in the IETF. He is the
author of eight RFCs, former chair of two Working Groups and one IRTF
Research Group, and has participated in every Area in the IETF. Mr.
Lear is also the co-Rapporteur in ITU-D Q22-1/1 "Securing information
and communication networks: best practices for developing a culture of
cybersecurity", as well as a past participant in the IPv6 Group and
WSIS
activities.

The IAB thanks the outgoing Liaison Manager, Mr. Patrik Fältström, for
his valuable service.

[For the IAB],
Bernard Aboba
IAB Chair
